Lesbian problems and 3 more great 'Grey's Anatomy' moments this week

Season 11 | Episode 10 | “The Bed’s Too Big Without You” | Aired Feb 5, 2015

If there’s one big lesson to learn from this week’s Grey’s Anatomy, it’s that you can pause sex for your best friend. This is the most important life hack ever; imagine how many nervous souls out there have gotten a special text from their BFF in the middle of sex and not known what to do.

But that was just one of a few big moments in this week’s episode of Grey’s, “The Bed’s Too Big Without You.”

“He Has a Penis”: A Love Story

Callie and Owen host a medical-tech representative, and Callie tries to convince Owen that he should pursue her, because she was definitely flirty. However, when they end up at Joe’s later that night, Callie tries to play wing woman for him, and it turns out the rep was being flirty—for Callie. After tossing Owen out as an option and having him slapped down, Callie asks what could be wrong with him. “He has a penis,” the rep replies. Classic lesbian problem.

With a nice overlay of Jetta’s “Feels Like Coming Home,” Callie and Owen hash out what happiness is supposed to mean, and if she’s maybe used it all.

Library book promises, 3D printer dreams

Essentially, you don’t make promises on library books when you have two nerdy patients who need a tumor resected. Because as soon as you swear on their library book of love, you’re probably going to kill the patient. Meredith and Jo make that mistake when a complicated liver tumor patient ends up being a complicated (everywhere) tumor patient.

They take the patient down for CAT scans. Meredith analyzes the tumor and says if she could hold it, she could fix it. Well, guess what? SHE CAN. All she has to do is print it, and she can, because from what I’ve gathered, only Cristina and Meredith know how to use the 3D printer. While printing, Meredith tells Amelia how strange it is to sleep alone. She used to be the middle of a Cristina-Meredith-Derek spoon, but now it’s just her.

After the (very colorful) tumor is printed, pretty much the whole hospital tackles the problem. But after making the cool flowchart, the patient starts bleeding, and they have to move it all upstairs. Dr. Karev joins, because ain’t no party like an urgent 3D printer tumor party. At the end of the day, the tumor is removed!

Dr. Herman’s greatest hits

In agreeing to potentially let Amelia do surgery on her tumor, Dr. Herman has also decided to essentially put together a greatest hits of surgeries for her and Arizona—aka, the most screwed-up fetal cases in existence to tackle together before Amelia goes full Mortal Kombat on Herman’s tumor. Elsewhere, Amelia is instructing the interns with Herman’s tumor, and their questions make it seem like maybe it’s not all that possible after all.

And Dr. Herman isn’t giving her any slack. She makes sure that Amelia knows that if she operates and fails, she’s doing more than just ending Dr. Herman’s life: She’s taking a premiere fetal surgeon out of the mix. By the end of the episode, all the residents have jumped ship over to the 3D tumor, and Amelia is defeated. Chief Webber brings her a coffee, and she finally breaks. But he explains that it’s not that the surgery is impossible—it’s that she’s the only one who gets it. But not so fast! After the whole episode, everything Amelia has said clicks with Stephanie. Amelia has finally found her partner in crime.

April and Jackson’s baby

“If our baby is type 2, I want to terminate,” Jackson says. April retorts, “I don’t care if he’s type 1 or type 2, I want to keep him.” I’m not saying that anyone should be against a woman’s right to terminate, but it is refreshing to see a woman lean toward life. I’ve admired April over the past couple seasons for her ability to hold true to her convictions.

They debate whether or not to keep their baby, bouncing back and forth between the scientific merits and emotional turmoil. April calls her mom, and she decides that the best change of scenery for April is to go to church—which you can tell is just thrilling for Jackson. After church, April’s mom announces that the results of the test aren’t important because it’s all in God’s plan. The tension mounts between Mama Kepner and Jackson until April snaps and says, “You’re telling me God only allows one choice, and you’re telling me there’s only one choice, and all I know is that I’m scared.”

After all the wait and the worry? Arizona walks in and announces that the test results show … that we ran out of time, and we might find out next week.

Grey’s Anatomy airs Thursdays at 8/7C on ABC.
